Here's the card I've planned to make for weeks now - I've worked on it a little bit now and then, between weddingcards and colourpractises :)
I wanted to participate in Sketchy Colors latest challenge, which were to choose my
favourite SC colorcombo challenge AND your faourite sketch from the 2012 challenges
That was NOT an easy challenge, with so many georgeous sketches and lovely colourcobinations to choose from! I ended up with the colourcombo fram challenge #121; Red, blue & grey and the sketch from challenge #112.
With the colours red, blue and grey I just had to use these marinelooking Magnolias - I think they are sooo cute! And I think they give a good summerfeeling - though we haven't had much weather for boattrips this summer...
The background is also a Magnoliaimage. Everything is coloured with DistressMarkers.
The papers are from MajaDesign and the cardstock are Bazzills. The edge on the grey cardstock is embossed with white embossingpowder. All edges are inked with DistressInk PumiceStone. Behind the imagescene I've tucked a layer of cheesecloth. Oh, and a tag, made with a Magnolia DooHickey :)
In the corners I've put on some red, blue and grey halfpearls. I used twine on the tag and on the sailboatcharm - I also tied a ribbon of it, maybe not very navylike, but I couldn't help it, I wanted it to be there...
Here's a closer look at Tilda and Edwin down by the seaside:
Here's the inside. The leftside panel is actually not fastened yet - I thought I'd wait 'till I know what greeting I'll use before I glue it down ;)
And the backside, I used the last third of the little "poem" thats in the bottomline of the DP.
(The first two are on the frontside)
